I heard Stories of Andal and Meera. Both of them are really so pure and displayed height of Bhakthi to Lord. Both of them wanted to marry Himself and both were born in Kaliyuga only.

But if you see Andal married as she wanted the Lord in Srirangam, whereas for Meera almighty did not fullfill her dream to marry, rather she married a mortal king!

Forgetting the mythological stories that Andal was actually Mahalakshmi herself etc, thinnking purely from a Human Emotions angle, is that not Injustice done to Meera? Because even Andal did not realise she is incarnation of Thayar and so she lived only as per human emotions and feelings.

Can anybody with good knowledge and authority provide you views, analysis on comparing the two tales?
